When the calf comes out of the chute the cowboy starts his run.

The lasso is over the cowboy's head.
Now it is over the calf's head. The cowboy has to be able to control the horse, twirl his lasso and concentrate on the running calf.
In this event the cowboy lets go of the rope after the calf is roped.  This makes sure that the little calf is not hurt.  The winner is the one with the shortest amount of time that it takes to rope a calf. When it starts to tighten...
...it comes loose so that the calf is not hurt. See?  This little calf is safe and headed for the barn.
